To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I didn’t buy this shredder initially - thought it was too expensive and bought a cheaper one. Big mistake. The cheaper one kept overheating, rejected anything more than 5 sheets thick and died after just three months. Luckily it was in guarantee so amazon gave me a refund. Then I bought this. It is great. Works super fast and doesn’t seem to have a problem with anything I feed it. No more spending hours trying to feed paper into a shredder!
This is one of many Fellowes shredders I have owned over the years and this model is by far the best. It is quietly powerful. It is perfect for home use. One of the best features is the slide out basket. In older models, I had to lift the shredder unit to empty the basket. This powerful unit handles mostly anything fed to it with ease. It is a workhorse in that you can continuously shred without the unit becoming over heated. The design is elegant and sleek with controls and displays in plain sight. For the price, it is a bargain. I would gladly recommend this unit to anyone seeking a no nonsense shredder that will perform for years to come.
I like the idea of a pull out drawer to empty the bin, but the drawer is also the 'front' of the unit, because there is no frame - so when the drawer is being pulled out the whole thing tends to wobble and sway because there is no structure under that heavy top unit that does the shredding. Its also difficult to get the drawer back in, once you open it to dump the shredded paper.
This is my second fellowes shredder. The first one lasted twenty one years. This one appears to be of similar quality. So far it’s working perfectly no complaints. Looking forward to many years of shredding.
